Shortly after declaring a major in Business Administration during her sophomore year, Linda learned that a professional business fraternity, Delta Sigma Pi was planning to open a chapter at Cal State Northridge.
Wanting to be a part of this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to start a collegiate organization from the ground up, Linda applied and was accepted as a charter member.
A team of Delta Sigma Pi alumni guided the small dedicated group, introducing them to Roberts Rules of Order along with professional and leadership skills. The charter members had the honor of being initiated by the board of directors.
Linda served as club secretary and ritual chairperson.
“It was an exciting time, building a chapter from the beginning. We could leave our mark on how the chapter would be run, and be a part of its history.”
Today, the Iota Upsilon chapter is still running strong. Linda enjoys staying in touch with her alumni brothers and corresponding with those newly initiated.
“I’m proud of what we accomplished back in the 1980s and inspired by what my fraternity brothers have achieved over the years in service to the community and setting an example of professional business ethics.”
